WaterFront City Animation
While reading Executive Magazine’s interview with MAF Properties senior mall manager Sleiman Mallat, I noticed that he talked about a new mall planned for Waterfront City in Dbayyeh, the Waterfront City Centre. I couldn’t find further details on Waterfrontcity.com related to this mall though.
Here’s what he said:
Q:You have much experience in the mall business in Lebanon, including working with the ABC Mall. How do you see the business of building and operating malls evolving in Lebanon?
A: Lebanese developers mainly develop small shopping centers that are not real malls. The complete offering is what will differentiate this shopping center from the small shopping malls. ABC is a shopping mall and City Mall is also a shopping mall, but as I said, Lebanon is underserved. All studies show that we can develop more shopping malls in Lebanon and we have another project, the Waterfront City Centre in Dbayeh.
I will keep you posted as soon as I find out more about it.
It almost always seems to me that these animated videos or “artist rendering” are always better than the actual development when it is finally built. When built, the never seem to have the same amount of greenery or cleanliness expressed in the videos..
…. and yet again another sea view being blocked, shitty real state and bad urban planing
